We saw very few people on our way and had a great time! There was enough sun most of the way. Beautiful views of the city.

The entire trail is covered in snow, but it's not very deep. I wore snow boots and that was fine. I didn't need spikes or snow shoes. It's absolutely beautiful! I only saw a couple people on the trail in the places closer to the parking lot. Further out, I was the only one.

Nice trail, although much of the trail is covered in fall leaves making it harder to know where you are. I suggest keeping the all trails map running to avoid getting lost.

Tricky to follow. Be sure to download a map before going. Several offshoots along the way that caused me some detours. Shaded early on, then out in the sun as you get to higher elevation on the trail. Pretty views. I ran on this trail--not too steep for that. I went counter clockwise then clockwise. Not sure one way is better.

Did the whole Loop. I’ve done it both in snow and in Fall. Honestly like it MUCH better in the snow. It’s a great snowshoe trail. Not a great hiking trail

Lovely trail . Went in the evening and saw deers and cows. The cows were kinda aggressive . Did about 2 miles in and the elevation gain was not much. Perfect for kids as it’s wide, has animals to see and sometimes people get thier horses as well.

Beautiful hike! Came across some cows but the view at the top was absolutely beautiful! It’s a great loop. Has a perfect mix between steep hills and medium relaxing hiking.

One of the best local hikes. Beautifully wooded and shaded at the beginning and end. There are also spectacular views of the Oquirrh & Copper Mountains and the South Valley in the middle. It’s a little rocky in the middle section as well, but overall a nice moderate hike.
